Cold Case Spotlight – Freddie Farah – Arrest Made

***** UPDATE – ARREST MADE *****

On May 16, 2017 the New Orleans Police Department arrested Johnie Miller, 60, on an out of state warrant for second-degree murder and attempted armed robbery in the 43-year-old cold case of Fuad “Freddie” Farah. The warrant was issued out of Jacksonville, Florida after the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Cold Case Unit was able to match Miller’s fingerprints to items left at the scene.

Freddie Farah’s case was featured on our site in a Cold Case Spotlight back in April at the request of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office in hopes of generating more information on the case.
